In this June 13, 2011 photo, Jackie Evancho, a runner-up on the talent competition series "America's Got Talent," poses for a portrait in New York. Though the classically inspired singer was the runner-up on "America's Got Talent" last year, she's been winning in every way since. Her Christmas EP, "O Holy Night," went platinum after its release last fall, and her first official album, "Dream With Me," debuted at No. 2. She's had her own PBS special, Oprah Winfrey requested her presence on one of her final good-bye shows, and while both Susan Boyle and Barbra Streisand appear on her new CD, Jackie more than holds her own against the two powerhouse divas.

Talk about the voice of an angel.

Remember little Jackie Evancho, the young "classical crossover" singer who stunned audiences on "America's Got Talent" last year (and came in second place)?

The 11-year-old's first official album, "Dream With Me," debuted at #2, behind an Eminem collaboration, after its release earlier this month, The Associated Press reports. Last fall, her Christmas EP, "O Holy Night," went platinum after its release.

"I've never seen a mature voice like this in all my years. It's just amazing," David Foster, who has worked with Barbra Streisand, Whitney Houston, Josh Groban and Celine Dion, told the AP.

Evancho is one of the rare singers who actually brings tears to our eyes -- but she has a long legacy of precocious stars behind her. From Michael Jackson to Anna Paquin, let us know: Who is the most talented child star of all time?
